One of the best varieties of lettuce of all time first grown by the old codger (Jeremy Shirley) in the 1950's. An excellent variety that produces deep green crunchy hearts of excellent flavour and self folding leaves. Slow to bolt as well.

Can be direct sown throughout the year to produce a succession of lettuce.

For Autumn sowing and over-winter growing under protection, producing early Spring crops, this is one of the most reliable varieties. In recent years we have even grown them outside throughout the Winter despite frost and light snow.

  • For Early Crops
  • Sow under protection in seed trays January to March and lightly cover seed.
  • Prick out (transplant) into modules or small pots when large enough to handle and grow on under protection.
  • Plant outside after fear of frost, setting out 10" (25 cm) apart in rows 18" (45 cm).
  • For Main Season Crops
  • Sow thinly in " (1 cm) deep drills 18" (45 cm) apart.
  • Thin out to one plant per 10" (25 cm) when large enough to handle (eat the thinnings of course!).
  • For Later Crops
  • Sow October and transplant to protected growing - cloches, greenhouse or similar - for harvesting in early Spring.
  • Top Tips
    Sow every 2 - 3 weeks to ensure a succession of lettuces throughout the Summer and early Autumn.
    Sowings between September and March are best done under protection.
    Through the late Autumn and over-winter plants can still be planted outside, though will mature quicker if grown under protection.
